Make A Wish - Poem by Venkateswaran Krishnan Sreenivasan

Make a wish and swiftly act
No wishful thinking; it is a tact
To hide the hideous fact
Of your sloth and ugly craft

Make a wish for our foundlings
Orphaned by fate or design
Of their parents who feign
To ignore their crime against underlings

Make a wish for the selfless mother
Who sacrificed her only son in war
To win laurels, acclaim and a star
To live desolate and gazing afar

    Wonderful imagery. So nicely envisioned and depicted. The favourite lines are ..... Make a wish for the selfless mother
    Who sacrificed her only son in war
    To win laurels, acclaim and a star
    To live desolate and gazing afar. Many thanks dear Sreenivasan, may God improve your poetic imagination.
